Subject [Gump Wiki] Update of "Drafts/BoardReports/20100616" by StefanBodewig

Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Gump Wiki" for change notification.

The "Drafts/BoardReports/20100616" page has been changed by StefanBodewig.


  Gump is written in Python and supports several build tools and version control systems.
 The Apache installation of Gump builds many ASF projects and their dependencies.  It started
in the Java part of the foundation but also builds projects like APR, HTTPd and log4net.
+ == Issues ==
+ There are no Board level issues.
+ == Community ==
+ The Gump project really consists of two parts, the code base for the project and the ASF
installations[1] running this code base to build many ASF projects as well as some related
+ The code base mostly does what its current users need so there isn't much development going
on at all.
+ All ASF committers have write access to the metadata that configure the ASF installations.
 There are few people contributing across all projects and a few addtional people maintaining
the metadata of the projects they are interested in the most.
+ == Development ==
+ The last quarter has seen a minor improvement that allows output file names to be specified
with wildcards.  Since Gump cannot influence the names of jars created by Maven 2.x the paths
had to be adjusted with every release of a project built by it so far.
+ We've managed to build a few projects that have been failing for a long time in Gump - among
them the ASF projects Portals, ActiveMQ, Directory Server, Tapestry and parts of Camel. 
+ == Releases ==
+ The ASF installations of Gump work on the latest code base almost all of the time.  The
project is in a state of a perpetual beta.  There have been no releases.
+ == Infrastructure ==
+ Access to vmgump has been tightened up, the number of people with sudo has been reduced
and OPIE is now required.
+ == Statistics ==
+ As of Sun, 06 Jun 2010 the ASF installations check out a bit less than 200 source trees
(114 from the ASF repository) and try to build a bit more than 600 "projects".  A complete
Gump run takes more than eleven hours on vmgump and eight and a half on the Solaris zone.
